American Policy Discussion Post, political science homework help

After you complete reading Dye, please make sure that you download the PowerPoint Presentation and Outlines for the assigned chapters (11-15) of Dye in the Course Materials folder.

Once you have downloaded the necessary materials, please answer the following two questions:

1.  After reading Dye (Chapter 13) and reflecting upon the chapter.   President Obama has been in office since 2009.  Since 2009, he has pushed Americans to have a greater understanding about the impacts that the cost of energy make on the economy.  This push has moved the United States into a more energy indepdent economy, rather than a energy dependent economy.  At the same time, the President has begun to develop policies that control the amount of fossil fuels that are emitting CO2 into the atmosphere.  These policies have been targeted to try and curtail the changes to our climate. 

After understanding the Presidents policies on energy, please tell us about the “three goals” of the Presidents “Cap and Trade” energy policy.  After you have listed these three goals, please tell us whether a “Cap and Trade” policy is likely to have a negative, or positive impact on the economy.  Make sure you think about the value added from an environmental standpoint, think about long term v. short term gains and finally support all of your answers with facts. 

2.  After reading Dye (Chapter 15) , please answer the following….The Defense Budget of the United States makes up a fairly large percentage of the federal governments discretionary spending.  In 2014, the President and the Secretary of Defense have announced cuts to the Defense budget.  After understanding Chapter 15, do you believe that the United States should cut the Defense Budget?  If so, why.  If not, why not?  Be original and detailed with your answer.

**Please do not ‘cut and paste’ answers.  MAKE SURE your answer is original and not copying the answer of other students.**
